A rampant, deserved and thoroughly dominant three points for Liverpool today.
Four sublime strikes and one own goal was the difference, and the home team were head and shoulders above their opponents in every department.
Jordan Henderson volleyed in the first from 20 yards before Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge combined for No. 2, which was Suarez's 20th of the season. Sturridge himself tapped home the third following a good move, and Gerrard made it three with a great strike from distance.
Ryan Bennett was the unfortunate scorer of the final goal, put through his own net, and Liverpool move—temporarily at least—into seventh place, their highest league position of the season.
Norwich drop to 13th after their fifth loss in six games.
90+1'—Brendan Rodgers still whistling and directing his team from the sidelines. He'll be delighted with the scoreline and the performance though.
Two minutes added time to be played.
89'—Into the last sixty seconds of normal time. Norwich just want the game over. Suarez still wants more goals and he bundles his way into the area, but Tettey puts a foot in to take the ball off him.
87'—Norwich struggling to get the ball out of their own half, even at this late stage. Liverpool pressing and battling from the front, with Borini and Suarez leading the way.
Norwich sub: Robert Snodgrass off, Anthony Pilkington on. Perhaps the most pointless appearance of the season for Pilkington?
84'—Both teams playing out the last minutes of this game at walking pace. Liverpool still committing men forward when they have the ball in the final third, but it's certainly more a case of keep possession rather than continue penetrating.
82'—The Reds have scored 10 goals against Norwich this season. Still around 10 minutes to go in this game, factoring in injury time.
80'—Snodgrass deservedly goes into the book for a rash challenge from behind on Raheem Sterling. Free kick to the Reds on the left side of the penalty area. Forward go Agger and Wisdom.
78'—Liverpool very much in-form today and the viewers are suitably impressed with what they have seen.

Liverpool sub: Jordan Henderson goes off to a standing ovation, replaced by Joe Allen.
It's not getting any better for the Canaries. Sterling runs down the left, accelerates into the penalty area leaving his marker for dead and steers the ball past Bunn, perhaps looking for goal or maybe crossing for Borini, but in either case it's Ryan Bennett who slides in and turns the ball into his own net. 5-0 to Liverpool.

Ryan Bennett own goal, 73 mins
71'—Snodgrass almost catches Liverpool unawares from a short corner, but when he looks up to try and shoot into the far corner he overhits the effort by far. Goal kick.
Double Liverpool sub: Raheem Sterling and Fabio Borini on for Lucas Leiva and Daniel Sturridge.
Henderson will drop into midfield alongside Gerrard now, with Sterling and Downing flanking Suarez and Borini.
It's the captain's turn to get involved and he does so with expert placing, picking up the ball from Glen Johnson's run down the left before drilling it inside the post from 25 yards. Great hit, and four for the Reds.

Steven Gerrard, 65 mins
64'—Liverpool have some defending to do as Snodgrass puts a free kick into the box, but Agger wins a header with a dominant leap and Lucas completes the clearance.
Norwich sub: Wes Hoolahan on for Elliot Bennett.
61'—Still a long way to go here and Liverpool are looking very much at ease. Wes Hoolahan getting ready to come on for Norwich, who might yet have an awful lot more defending to do today.
3-0, and likely game over. Henderson floats a great pass into the box which Downing immediately returns via a cushioned, low cross—the bouncing ball beats Bunn, and Sturridge runs in to tap home from close range. A third goal in three games for the new striker.

Daniel Sturridge, 58 mins
55'—Shots coming in thick and fast for Liverpool now. From a corner, Downing exchanges passes with Johnson on the right edge of the penalty area and hurries to get his shot away, driving an effort just wide of the near post.
54'—Suarez twists and turns away from three defenders again and fires in a low pass to Sturridge—who isn't expecting it and the ball runs away from him.
53'—Andre Wisdom takes a long pass in his stride, bursts into the penalty area and shoots low with his left foot...but it's spun away awkwardly and ends up running toward the corner flag rather than the far post. Positive run though.
